Australia has a dark side embedded in the landscape, deserts, convict-built gaols, museums, public houses, and civic buildings. It has a harsh history of brutality and cruelty based on a convict past, so there is little wonder it is haunted. Find here over 150 ghostly locations covering the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, the Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania, and external territories. Meet a young girl, found dead under a cattle grid who is seen lying on her back, her pitiful eyes staring up at startled witnesses or a soldier who was locked in a closet, entombed there as everyone left for an extended break. From hotel spirit hostages, ghostly phone calls, haunted mansions and houses to ghosts with dripping head wounds, and more, Australia has a full range of hauntings across its wide, brown land.
